For this Valentine's Day, we decided to go Vegetarian. Since it was vegetarian, it was tough to decide upon a great menu to please myself and my husband. Finally, with my sister's help, I came up with this menu - Potato Heart Dumplings in Spicy Curry, Steamed Basmati Rice, Salad and Rosemary Avocado Sorbet. The juice we decided to include in this meal was Rose Lemonade which was awesome. My husband loved it. I gave the the Rosemary Avocado Sorbet to my toddler later on and she just finished it up. I was super super happy! Please do try it and am sure you will love it too. Thank you.
